This exhibition explores Air, Water, Wood, Metal and Earth through the work of artists Virginia O. Roeder, Joann Rea, Peter Jablokow, Ted Glasoe, and Philip Battaglia.

While contemporary scientific understanding of elements differs greatly, early philosophers and scientists viewed elements as a few simple states of matter that composed the more complex world as a whole. Many modern day systems from Chinese Medicine to Ayurvedic Healing continue to utilize these concepts.

On August 26, 1920, American women were granted the right to vote through the 19th Amendment to the Constitution. From Women’s Suffrage to the Women’s Liberation Movement and the fight for equal pay that persists today, this exhibition draws from the long-fought battles of the past and present by honoring inspirational women in Evanston. Inequality and Influence showcases local community members who have made and still make positive contributions to Evanston life and culture.

This exhibition will feature the work of photographer, Annette Patko, (photo at left of Mayor Lorraine H. Morton) as well as historical documentation and artifacts from the Frances Willard Historical Association and Shorefront Legacy Center.

 

Admission to the Noyes Gallery is free and open to the public. These programs are sponsored by the City of Evanston and supported in part by a grant from the Illinois Arts Council, a state agency.
